POST- PROCESSING (washing, storing) is TIME CONSUMING

Plastic bags are NOT

ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY

TEDIOUS TO CARRY on a two-wheeler

ANALYSIS OF EXISTING CONTROLLERS PROBLEMS The controllers are...

BRIEF Making the learning curve of a DJ controller easier and more intuitive through better feedback

KEY LEARNING

VISUALLY COMPLICATED INCOMPREHENSIVE

very CLUTTERED very DIFFICULT TO LEARN and LACK TACTILE FEEDBACK

> User interface design > Importance of ergonomics (visual ergonomics) > Importance of feedback mechanisms

jesal.shah@mitid.edu.in | 8 of 24


DESIGN CRITERIA Redesigning a DJ controller which... Is Visually more Ergonomic , Comprehensive and Intuitive Provides better Tactile and Visual feedback Improves efficiency of use Is easier to learn Is more Organised and Clutter-free

TARGET USER

A Novice Disc Jockey

CONCEPTUALIZATION

layouts and placement of groups

SLID-O

A bottle to contain small chocolates, pills etc. A range of multipurpose colourful bottles.

Individual project Duration: 1 week


DETAILS & FEATURES

EXPLODED VIEW

Slider Lid The slider rests here

DESIGN BRIEF

The groove which enables the slider and rivet to slide

To design a container which would be made by injection molding. Bottle

KEY LEARNING > Design for manufacturability > Working with limited material and within given constraints

-Hole in the lid

The lid and bottle have The lid rests here guides and counter guides such that they snap together

This depression helps in griping the slider

The rivet goes through this hole

WORKING MECHANISM

Completely closed hole

Hole half open

Completely open hole jesal.shah@mitid.edu.in | 13 of 24


VISUALISATION OF INJECTION MOLD Since the groove is an undercut, there will have to be either side CAM, or sprung core ejector pins.

CAVITY (LID)

CORE (LID)

The bottle will have to be made by Blow- Injection molding

RAPID PROTOTYPING (RPT)

To be able to visualise and check if the bottle was properly detailed, a prototype was made using Rapid prototyping technology.

WalkWit’ A Walker that walks with you

Group project | (2 people) Duration: 4 weeks


ANALYSIS OF EXISTING WALKER PROBLEMS BRIEF Making the walker more easy to use and improving the mobility of impaired people.

HARD for user to FOLD, ASSISTANCE IS REQUIRED

Once collapsed, NEEDS TO BE RESTED against something CANNOT be used to CLIMB STAIRS

Is HEAVY for frail users

KEY LEARNING >Importance of every minute detail in a product and its functioning >Designing for a special need and for a specific target audience >Relation of form and function

DISRUPTS FLOW OF WALKING

Doesn’t provide WIDTH ADJUSTMENT

The walker frame is kept ahead and then the user takes a step ahead. DISRUPTED FLOW OF WALKING

Spring loaded ball pin used for height adjustability and folding. jesal.shah@mitid.edu.in | 16 of 24


DESIGN CRITERIA Redesigning the walker which Retains the flow of walking Provides good stability and support with minimalistic frame work Is easy to fold Allows Width adjustability Is visible at night

TARGET USER

People having weak lower limbs restricted to stay indoors or in close vicinity

CONCEPTUALIZATION

Add-ons, Changes and other concepts were made on an existing walker and validation was carried out jesal.shah@mitid.edu.in | 17 of 24


DETAILS & FEATURES FINAL CONCEPT WalkWit’ is a simple, minimalistic walker frame that walks with you.

HAND GRIP

PHOTO LUMINISCENT ROD

>SWIVEL MOTION The walker frame can be moved one side at a time, hence the walker walks with you. This motion can be locked. >FOLDING MECHANISM A clamp lock with telescopic rods is used. Provides width adjustability. Maximum width: 26” Minimum width : 12 “

CLAMP LOCK TELESCOPIC RODS SWIVEL JOINT

>NIGHT VISIBILITY A faint photoluminicent paint is applied at strategic places making it visible at night HEIGHT ADJUSTABILITY
